Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson had scant seconds to scan the field,<strong> Dede Westbrook Jersey</strong>, reading the situation on the fly Wednesday as he diagnosed defenses during a red-zone drill.
Watson spotted an open wide receiver in the back corner of the end zone, but his pass arrived too late and was slightly overthrown as a potential touchdown opportunity was lost.
A first-round draft pick who was a Heisman Trophy finalist and national champion at Clemson, Watson is making steady progress in his knowledge of the Texans' complex playbook. The Texans are seeing incremental growth from Watson as he learns to read NFL defenses to hit his receivers in stride.
"He's gotten better," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "He's gotten better every day. I think the hard part about this week is there's more snaps in the red zone where things happen a lot faster down there. That's always something that takes a rookie quarterback probably the longest to learn how fast things happen down there.
"But he works hard. He's in here all the time studying. I think he was coached really well at Clemson,<strong>Zach Banner Jersey</strong>, so he has a good basic fundamental knowledge of football. He's got instincts and he's getting better every day."
